Method acting character driven voice performance

Voice Description

The voice that I produce is the result of a character driven acting approach in which I develop a clear picture of the scene, time, and situation that is motivating the recorded words and emotions of the character. If this fails then I try a more technical approach which involves scoring the piece. This technical approach scores the voice work piece to create different variations for each word, phrase, or section of the work... inflections, moods and effects - I accomplish this by moving emphasis onto different words, dropping the jaw to sound more American, pumping up the sarcasm to elevate the humor, shortenning or extending pauses, exaggerating a smile to impart more happiness into the recording, deadpanning the read... etc.

My Voice Experience

My voice experience began with Toastmasters.
I have performed as a speaker and presenter at tradeshows and conventions. I have worked in the toy industry in product development. I have a baseline Canadian voice, tinged with Upper Canada Valley roots - giver-eh! My voice has evolved and become influenced by 8 years of Western Canadian living and 10 years of Maritime East Coast living. My childhood voice was also influenced by a Finnish speaking mother and grandparents. Travel has exposed me to the accents of the Caribbean, Hong Kong, and southern United States. Working for Australian company FAI exposed me to the sounds and styles of the Australian voices. I plan to continue to take voice lessons to improve my range and vocal voice capabilities.
